Green Logistics?

Environmental factors are increasingly becoming the focus of the logistics sector: “Green logistics” is the catchphrase with which environmentally friendly traffic concepts are being implemented. bayernhafen takes this one step further. We do not regard the issue of sustainability as a job but as a defining factor of our actions.

Our strategic site management involves revitalising existing land and commercial areas. We support renewable energy generation technologies – the roofs of our logistics buildings are equipped with solar panels and our ports are ideal locations for producing bio-diesel production and for biomass-CHP plants. The high international distribution of labour in our globalised world requires environmentally friendly freight transport concepts – an important contribution to this is achieved through the networking of the modes of transport.

These are only some of the examples of how we are protecting our environment. Environmentally conscious and sustainable action is the common thread that runs through everything that our company does. All our locations are focused on the future.
